Happy Marriage vs. Healthy Marriage

Happy Marriage vs. Healthy Marriage

From the very beginning, my goal has always been to build a healthy marriage and not a happy marriage. Why?

In a happy marriage:

  • Conflicts might be avoided at all costs
  • There might be too much “us” and not enough “self”
  • Couples might give up easily when the marriage is no longer happy

In a healthy marriage:

  • There are clear boundaries and realistic expectations
  • Differences are respected and there is a strong sense of self
  • Couples know how to manage conflicts when they arise

To me, happiness is a vague goal and can’t be a finite goal in itself. Happiness is actually a byproduct of having a healthy marriage.

What about you? Do you want to be happy or healthy? Let me know down below👇

Until next time!
